There is no tie-up for all types of treatments at all the concerned hospitals. Therefore, one needs to ascertain which hospital provides what treatments under the scheme. Hence, all hospitals have “Arogya Mitra” counter at their premises for this concern.

Although treatments of up to Rs 5 lakh may be availed, it cannot be availed for only one person or as a group. If admitted in an ICU, the payment will be in phases.

Now the people have knowledge regarding the government hospitals and have faith in them. They know that good service is provided at government hospitals. Hence, the number of patients at the government hospitals is increasing – K Jagannath, Ayushman Arogya Karnataka

DK district s renowned for health services and Wenlock district hospital too provides good facilities. Hence, more patients are coming to the hospital. More private hospitals are signing up contract under this scheme. All these points have been helpful in getting the first place for the district in the implementation of the scheme – Dr| Ramakrishna Rao, District Health and Family Welfare Officer.
